db
GrampsAIO uses Oracle Berkeley DB version 6.0.30 but MSYS2 have it at version 6.0.19 and most probably never update it to a newer version.
<br>Gramps will ask permission to downgrade database version at import of any family tree created with GrampsAIO bundle. To prevent that build right version of DB.
<br>You can do it in easy way by downloading prebuilt package or hard way by building it yourself.<br>Start ''msys2 shellHard way'' and type (easy wayit can take some time to finish):
<pre>
cd ~/build
wget svn checkout https://github.com/bpisoj/MINGW-packages/releasesbranches/download/v5.0gramps5/mingw-w64-x86_64dbcd mingw-w64-dbMINGW_INSTALLS=mingw64 makepkg-6.0.30-1mingw -any.pkg.tar.xzsLf
